We are busy preparing for the annual Elementary Christmas Program here in music classes. Next Thursday, December 13th, at 1pm and 7pm, you are invited to come see our Christmas musical, "Children of Bethlehem." The story is a fictional look at Jesus' birth through the eyes of young children living in Bethlehem the night He is born. The musical selections include favorites such as "Do You Hear What I Hear?", "We Three Kings," and "The Little Drummer Boy." Students in grades 1st-5th are all involved! We have been learning about our singing voices, different instrument techniques that will be featured, and what a great opportunity we have to present the story of Jesus' birth. May we all--the audience, the children, and me!--be able to pause during this program and come to the manger with a renewed sense of wonder and awe over Emmanuel's birth.
In an effort to conceal some of our "surprises," I am positing some pictures instead of videos of the kids getting ready. Hope to see you here!
